It has been difficult to apply any sort of order to recent world affairs and the so-called ?war on terror.? Many people who have had their political ideology compromised time and time again end up feeling powerless, angry, or depressed. A new top-ten list based on the writings of Joel and Michelle Levey is a demulcent for soothing the feelings of hopelessness concerning war and terrorism. The list focuses on physical and cerebral exercises we can do to cope with feeling overwhelmed with anxiety or aggression. An important point is to not get caught up in too much doomsday thinking. Point six reminds us that there is always a range of possible outcomes and that we sometimes focus on the worst. And while it?s important to acknowledge that something bad could happen, it?s best to simply acknowledge negative possibilities and let them go. Our minds better serve humanity when we envision positive outcomes, like the possibility of world peace. Point 10 invites you to use your mental powers to radiate love into the world.
